Baku, Azerbaijan, Oct. 10
By Rashid Shirinov – Trend:
Kazakhs and Serbs will soon have an opportunity to fly directly between their countries, according to the relevant agreement achieved during the official visit of Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic to Kazakhstan.
"The legal framework for direct air communication between the two countries was created by signing a memorandum. The airlines of the parties have the right to operate seven flights a week between Astana and Belgrade," the Civil Aviation Committee of the Kazakh Ministry for Investments and Development stated.
The memorandum of understanding in the field of air transport was signed by the Kazakh Minister of Investment and Development Zhenis Kassymbek and Serbian Deputy Prime Minister, Minister of Construction, Transport and Infrastructure Zorana Mikhailovich.
Presently, the Civil Aviation Committee is working systematically to create conditions for opening new flights.
In addition to the memorandum on air transport, Kazakhstan and Serbia signed another three memorandums in the fields of construction, youth policy and veterinary medicine within the Kazakhstan-Serbia business forum in Astana.
Vucic later said that for Serbia these are crucial agreements, as they will strengthen the Kazakh-Serbian cooperation in the economic fields at the highest level.
